The Netherlands Smoke Free Alliance launched a new campaign to "protect children against tobacco smoke and the temptation to smoke". The alliance, consisting of cancer society KWF, the Heart Foundation and the Lung Fund, wants smoking bans in places children frequent, like playgrounds, zoos and swimming pools, RTL Nieuws reports.
The alliance is delighted that 550 sports clubs maintain smoking bans, but that's not enough. Parents themselves have to work on protecting their children against smoking. "Because unfortunately seeing smoking means starting smoking", the alliance said.
